Brest benefits from a sheltered position close to the western tip of the Breton peninsula in France’s Finistère department. Holidays to Brest from Manchester are popular due to its close proximity to the shores of the UK, and the attractions that await visitors once they arrive. There are a number of features to the city that enhance holidays to Brest, including the Tanguy Tower, Pont de Recouvrance drawbridge and the Château de Brest. The latter, the city’s castle, is endowed with a history that stretches back more than 1,700 years; ranging from Roman times to its significance during World War II. Brest’s coastal setting means it has a heritage intertwined with maritime importance, which can be uncovered at the National Navy Museum. During August be sure to check out Les Jeudis du Port, or ‘Thursdays at the Port’, while every fourth July (coinciding with the Olympic year) the Tonnerres de Brest rolls into town; a huge maritime celebration that draws in excess of 1,500 boats to Brest’s harbour. Make sure you delve into the Brest cuisine while you're in town, with a particular must being the Breton crepe. As you might expect from a harbour city, Brest counts seafood among its specialities, and there are plenty of options for sampling the delights; ranging from cosy local haunts to Michelin-starred extravaganzas. The area is also particularly proud of its apple cider, so be sure to check that out if you’re a fan of this tipple. Meander along the coast on a relaxing walk, enjoy the history and culture of the area, and eat, drink and be merry; there’s plenty to enjoy with holidays to Brest.
